Boy & Bear To Play Bonnaroo, Firefly And More

January 20, 2016 BY Nettwerk

Boy & Bear will return to the States in June for various summer festivals, including BonnarooFirefly Music Festival and LaureLive. The quintet’s latest album, Limit Of Love, was released last fall and immediately hit #1 in their native Australia. In the US, lead single “Walk The Wire” sat in the Top 20 of the Triple A Top 30 Chart for several weeks, where it recently peaked at #13.


For the follow-up to 2013’s acclaimed Harlequin Dream, Boy & Bear decided to take the momentum they had gathered on the road – 170 shows across three continents in one year – directly into the studio. They teamed up with renowned producer Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs) with the intention of cutting a record the old fashion way, live in the studio (vocals and all), straight to tape, with virtually no overdubs. 

Named one of USA Today’s “5 Australian Acts You Need To Know Now,” Boy & Bear saw huge success in North America in 2014 with single “Southern Sun” from Harlequin Dream, which was Top 5 on the Triple A Top 30 Chart for five consecutive weeks. The band made their U.S. late night TV debut last summer on CONAN, as well as appeared on NPR’s “World Café With David Dye” and VH1 Big Morning Buzz.  In their home country, Harlequin Dream debuted at #1 on the ARIA Top Albums Chart and was certified Platinum.
Boy & Bear is Dave Hosking (lead singer/guitars), Killian Gavin (guitars/vocals), Tim Hart (drums/vocals), Jon Hart (keys/vocals) and Dave Symes (bass/vocals).
